queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

(sorry for the fuzzy pic)

So I stayed home from school yesterday (minor sickness, I’m fine now) and basically spent the day doing homework, sewing, and watching The Music Man (as is my nature.) I actually wore this on Friday – I tend to wear simpler/more boring (depending on your point of view) outfits on Fridays, just because I’m so tired at the end of the week and don’t have the energy to think of outfits or get dressed creatively. This is my standard plain tee + favorite jeans + favorite boots combo, plus my amazing tailcoat. I feel like it’s a little bit sacriligeous (spelling?) to wear this coat with such a boring outfit, but at the same time I like how it gives the illusion that wearing this jacket is such a casual thing. You know, like Oh, I can’t think of a new outfit today, I’ll just wear a T-shirt and jeans, and it’s a little chilly outside, so I guess I’ll throw on a jacket or something…which just happens to be a tailcoat.

In other news, I’ve decided I’m not dressing crazy enough, compared to some of my previous outfits. Maybe it’s time to bust out the tutu again…or start wearing things upside down like I used to. Any ideas? I’m sort of stuck in a rut right now, which is really depressing/midlife-crisis-esque and I’m hoping to get out of it as soon as I can get a good night’s sleep and my brain is back to working properly.

One final note – the hole in my jeans keeps growing bigger and bigger. Sometimes I wonder why it’s only on one knee and not the other – do I have an especially pointy knee or something? And then other times I wonder which will happen first: the hole spreading all the way around the leg, or me outgrowing these pants to the extent that my legs being stuffed inside them isn’t remotely attractive anymore. :/

"oh yeah I'll just throw on a... TAILCOAT" love that line. love the coat too... it's so cool! as for the hole...ripped things just rip easily, and I guess the other leg just doesn't have that little tear to start the process. maybe the left knee was more worn and ripped first (maybe you kneel down onto that leg more. anyway your legs are modelesque, so I say they rip before the 2nd option.

hee hee "modelesque", aww thanks :) what you said makes sense, maybe I cross one leg over the other more often. I don't really have a habit of getting down on one knee though...not a lot of marriage proposals going on in my life right now. :P

I know what you mean about feeling inspired. I feel like I am capable of putting together a great outfit every now and then, but to keep it up is a lot of pressure! I actually find dressing for special occasions kind of fun. Like picnic at the park, or museum day with parents. It's hard to be original ALL the time. That's why I look to Chictopia for more inspiration :-)

EXACTLY! I sort of get a boost of creativity every so often, but the rest of the time I dress really simply... it's usually all or nothing. (but I wish it could be "all" more often!)

Thanks! I do feel better now, as shallow as it seems, wearing crazy pieces like this tailcoat always cheers me up :)
